LANCASTER - The Marauder women's soccer team got behind 1-0 to Moorpark College in only the first six minutes of the game.
That momentum for the Raiders was short-lived as AVC's defense was stingy and behind a goal and an assist from Alyssa Sanchez, the Marauders were able hold off Moorpark 2-1, Tuesday at Marauder Stadium.
AVC improved its record to 5-2 and will travel to Pasadena City College to face the Lancers on Friday, which are undefeated on the season.
Trailing 1-0, following a goal by the Raiders' (2-5-1) Brittney Clancy at 6:14 of the first half, AVC tied the score at 30:55 following a goal by Katie Arnold. Near the end of the second half, Sanchez scored the game-winner at 87:43 off the helper from Lindsey McDermott.
